**Two new connections between the Planetary and Lunar Cycles**

1. The Connection Between the Lunar Tidal Cycles and the Synodic Period of Venus and the Earth.

The first direct connection between the planetary orbital periods and the lunar tidal cycles can be found in a previous blog post that is located at:

In this post it was found that:

If you take the minimum period between the times of maximum change in the tidal stresses acting upon the Earth that are caused by changes in the direction of the lunar tides (i.e. 1.89803 tropical years), and amplitude modulate this period by the minimum period between the times of maximum change in tidal stresses acting upon the Earth that are caused by changes in the strength of the lunar tides (i.e. 10.14686 tropical years), you find that the 1.89803 year tidal forcing term is split into a positive and a negative side-lobe, such that:

Positive side-lobe

[10.14686 x 1.89803] / [10.14686 – 1.89803] = 2.3348 tropical yrs = 28.02 months

Negative side-lobe

[10.14686 x 1.89803] / [10.14686 + 1.89803] = 1.5989 tropical yrs
